JOE Biden is set to deliver a ‘big speech’ tomorrow morning on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
President Biden, who will be in Poland on Friday and Saturday, will make the remarks on Saturday at a time to be confirmed.
“He will deliver a major address tomorrow addressing the challenges of this moment, the urgency of the challenge ahead, what the conflict in Ukraine means for the world and why it is so important for the free world to maintain unity and… Determination in the face of Russian aggression,” Jake Sullivan, White House national security adviser, said, according to CNN.
The two-day visit, which begins on Friday, follows a trio of crisis summits in Brussels.

Most support sanctions
CBS News recently conducted a poll and found that most Americans approve of recent sanctions against Russia, even if it means increasing gas prices.
63 percent support such a measure even with rising prices, compared to 36 percent who are against.
NATO could react if Putin uses chemical weapons
If Russia, led by Putin, uses chemical weapons in Ukraine, the country could face a retaliatory chemical weapons attack, President Joe Biden recently confirmed.
Boris Johnson warned the Kremlin dictator of “catastrophic consequences” if he dared, and President Biden warned the West could launch a “substantive response” during the summit at NATO headquarters this week.
“United” against Russia’s war in Ukraine
“It was an honor to meet European Commission President von der Leyen this morning,” President Biden said Twitter.
“We are united in our condemnation of Russia’s unjustified and unprovoked war of aggression against Ukraine.”
“Together we have announced new steps to reduce Europe’s dependence on Russian energy.”
Zelensky open to negotiations
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told CNN on March 20 that he was ready for negotiations with Russia and had been for two years.
“I’m ready to negotiate with him. I’ve been ready for the last two years. And I don’t think we can end this war without negotiations,” he said CNN.
“I think we have to use every format, every opportunity to have an opportunity to negotiate, an opportunity to talk to Putin.”
“But if these attempts fail, it would mean that this is a third world war,” he added.
Biden is not going to Ukraine
Press secretary Jen Psaki said the White House had not considered the possibility of sending President Biden to Ukraine during his time abroad.
“Any President of the United States who travels to a war zone requires not only security considerations but also a tremendous amount of resources on the ground, which is always a factor in our considerations,” she said CNN.
“It was a decision about what would be most effective on the trip.”
European Council meeting in Brussels
Early on in his European tour, President Biden attended a European Council meeting in Brussels and wrote about it on Twitter.
“Today I attended a European Council meeting in Brussels,” he said tweeted.
“We are committed to continuing to provide humanitarian assistance to those fleeing violence in Ukraine and to continuing to impose economic costs on Russia for its actions.”
When does Biden’s journey end?
President Biden is expected to end his meetings on March 24 after discussing new sanctions against Russia.
Information on what these sanctions entail has not been made public.
“Putin has his back to the wall”
“Now Putin has his back against the wall,” President Biden told business leaders before leaving Washington for the high-stakes trip to Europe.
“He did not foresee the scale or strength of our unit. And the more his back is against the wall, the harder he can apply the tactic.”
Meeting with NATO allies
President Biden left the White House on March 23, 2022 to meet with NATO allies.
He is currently on a trip to Brussels and Poland in the midst of the Russian war against Ukraine.
During his time in Poland he will deal with the Ukrainian refugee crisis.
Where is Biden this weekend?
President Biden will be in Poland on Friday and Saturday.
He will deliver those scheduled remarks at a time to be confirmed on Saturday.
“The Stake of This Moment”
“He will deliver a major address tomorrow addressing the challenges of this moment, the urgency of the challenge ahead, what the conflict in Ukraine means for the world and why it is so important for the free world to maintain unity and… Determined in the face of Russian aggression,” White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said of the speech President Biden is scheduled to deliver CNN.
